how many days before a period does a woman typically ovulate?
I mean if i was on the 4th day of my period, would i be ovulating so soon?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Ovulation usually occurs between 12 and 14 days before your period starts. This is an average, so it could be a couple of days earlier or later.

You start counting on the last day of your period. Count forward 12 to 14 days and you can estimate when you will ovulate.
